Some of you may have forgotten that Samsung has made Windows powered mobile devices in the past, it’s just that it has been awfully long since the company last released such a device. Earlier this year it was rumored that Samsung is working on a new tablet which will run Windows 10. It appears that the rumored tablet is destined for release soon as it has received the required certification from Wi-Fi Alliance.
The tablet is expected to have a 12 inch display 2,560×1,600 or 3,840×2,400 pixel resolution. It may be powered by an Intel Core M processor with 4GB RAM. Previous rumors have suggested that the S Pen might also be present since this device will be geared towards those who want both productivity and entertainment.
It’s not known right now what Samsung will end up calling this 12 inch tablet, it’s first Windows 10 mobile device, the certification only mentions the SM-W700 model number which obviously won’t be used in marketing materials when this device is released.
One can assume that Samsung might unveil this tablet at the Consumer Electronics Show 2016 next month, it would be the right place to debut a new tablet, or perhaps the company might go with a quiet launch once the CES news cycle has subsided.
Who knows what Samsung is planning for its first Windows 10 tablet, it’s silence on the matter certainly isn’t making things easier.
